Three Cavaliers Selected in 2014 MLL Draft

Three Virginia seniors were selected in Friday's Major League Lacrosse Collegiate Draft. Senior defenseman Scott McWilliams was the highest-draft choice and was selected in the first round as the eighth overall pick by the Boston Cannons.

Midfielder Rob Emery and attackman Mark Cockerton were also selected. The Cannons selected Emery in the third round with the 17th overall pick, while the Rattlers picked Cockerton in the seventh round with the 56th overall selection.

UVa now has 44 all-time selections in the MLL Draft, which trails only Syracuse (48) for the most in the nation all-time.

McWilliams is a two-time USILA All-American and finished second in the nation with 36 caused turnovers in 2013. McWilliams has picked up 97 career ground balls and has scored two career goals and assisted five more.

Emery is also a two-time USILA All-American and a member of the 2013 ACC All-Academic team. Emery is tied for No. 15 all-time at UVa among midfielder goal-scorers with 59 career tallies.

Cockerton, a senior from Oshawa, Ontario, led the nation in goals scored during the 2013 regular season. The third-team USILA All-American posted the fourth-best goal-scoring season in UVa history with his tally of 49 in 2013.
